October 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

We (my two adult grandchildren along with myself) had a wonderful time on the Scotland-Ireland tour. Paddy was a very good tour guide as well as an excellent bus driver! We learned a great amount of history of both countries from him on the tour as well about the country side & cities we visited! The stay in the hotels, palaces & castles were grand. The food superb! The last evenings entertainment was very delightful! Most enjoyable 14 day tour! Thank you!

My Husband and Took the Ireland/Scotland 2 weeks trip with Paddy O’Farrell it was everything we thought it would be and more. I have already shared with a coworkers and one is looking into it for next year. Our weather was great Paddy was so informative and proud of his heritage. Food and hotel were great.

October 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

The 14 day Scotland/Ireland tour was incredible and exceeded all of our expectations. Our driver guide Paddy was knowledgeable, entertaining, and accommodating. I’d highly recommend this tour.

October 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

My wife and I just returned from a 14 day tour of Scotland and Ireland with My Ireland Tours. Our driver was Paddy O’Farrell and you could only be lucky enough to get him as your guide/ driver. This was the trip of lifetime and Paddy made the trip so much more. His knowledge is amazing and his driving was 100% on point. He was personal and funny , and really made the trip that much better. My Ireland Tours was professional and worth every penny we spent.

October 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

Wow! We we just returned from the 14 day for Ireland experience tour. It was amazing! Our Tour Guide, Shephard, Information Manager, comedian, and Professional - was Mr. Eamonn Broderick. Our group came together and meshed from the first night we met. We encouraged each other and together, enjoyed each stop on this fabulous and phenomenal tour experience. My wife celebrated her 70th birthday on this trip, and My Ireland Tours connected with each Hotel along the way to make it a special experience. They had a card and chocolates in the every room. The weather cooperated too, but it was our driver, Eamonn Broderick, who brought the whole thing together and made every opportunity special.

October 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

Loved the entire 14 day Scotland/Ireland Tour. Our driver/tour guide Paddy O’Farrell made the whole experience that much better. We felt very safe with his superior driving skills and appreciated the knowledge and love he shared about both countries. The itinerary was rich in its history of both countries as well as the beauty of the locations we stopped in. The 26 person group was a bonus, plenty of room on the bus. Hotels/Castles/Palaces were beautiful. Our first tour and it was something we’ll never forget. Thank you!Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

October 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

We did the Scotland and Ireland 14 day tour with Pat as our tour guide. It was fantastic. Pat at one point had to pass another bus and there was 2 inches between his side mirror and the other bus. Pat did not hesitate and its impressive with how little room there is on the road and how Pat negotiated it effortlessly every time. I would not want to drive in Europe . I appreciated the fact that I could see the country and relax in a roomy bus and I didn't have to rely on a garmin. Also a couple of the places we stayed were 5 star hotel quality. The fact that two of your meals a day are taken care of is an added bonus. Thanks for a grand tour of my ancestoral homeland.

October 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

October 2023 Scotland Ireland Tour Words cannot do justice to Pat who was our driver and guide, or to the wonderful new friends we made on this 13 day tour. Pat was a wealth of knowledge and saw to our every need. The group felt like family after only a few days. This was a dream come true. So much to see, and do. Loved Edinburgh, Inverness, St. Andrew, our nights in the castles as well as our days at Cliffs of Moher and Giants Causeway. Too many high points to list them all. I can't wait to go back.

October 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

We chose the Scotland/Ireland tour and it was more than incredible. Paddy was our tour guide, he was so knowledgeable, funny and somehow kept all 26 of us tourists on schedule. We went to all of our scheduled destinations as well as a couple “off the beaten path” stops that only added to an already amazing trip. We saw more beauty and history than we ever could have imagined. If you get the opportunity to tour Ireland (and Scotland) with My Ireland Tour, you will not be disappointed. I highly recommend and hope to go back again as well with one of their other packages. TRIP OF A LIFETIME!

October 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

The 14 day Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour was simply incredible. The itinerary was filled with historical landmarks and nightly accommodations at 4-5 star hotels or castles. What enhanced the 2 weeks was our Guide-Driver Paddy O'Farrell as he moved throughout Scotland and Ireland, maintaining a schedule that ensured we had time for meals, made all our stops on time and arrived at our hotels in time for happy hour and dinner. Paddy also mentioned many historical facts and pointed out key landmarks. Highlights in Scotland included: The Edinburgh Castle, The Royal Mile and the Holyrood Palace. We stopped for photo opts at the bridge at St. Andrews, cruised on Loch Ness and visited Sterling Castle. After taking a ferry ride to Dublin, we enjoyed the majesty of the Ireland landscapes. Key points of interest were the Cliffs of Moher, the Giant's Causeway, then stopping in Galway for a sheepdog demo and the Glengowla Mines. Paddy stopped at Pat Cohan's bar where we had a beer and took photos of this iconic bar from 'The Quiet Man'. We visited the Blarney Castle where we kissed the Blarney stone and then spent time at the Blarney Woollen Mills. The trip would not have been complete without a few hours at the Guinness Storehouse and finally a dinner and traditional Irish music at the Merry Ploughboy Pub. Truly a memorable vacation which enlightened all of us about the history and culture of Scotland and Ireland plus incredible pictures to remember all these great moments. I highly recommend this tour and, if you're lucky, you'll get Paddy O'Farrell as your guide.

October 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

My husband and I went on the Iconic Scotland and Ireland tour with My Ireland Tours. It was a total class act. The hotels and the food were fantastic. Both Scotland and Ireland are majestically beautiful. We saw so many wonderful sites. Everything would have been just places on a map without our Driver/Tour Guide Paddy O' Farrell. With Paddy at the helm we were in great hands. He was the ultimate professional! Paddy was very knowledgeable and educational about both Scotland and the Emerald Isle. Our tour bus traveled many miles along the narrow winding roads of both countries. Paddy's driving skills were magnificent. He made time for us to see many places not included on the tour. He always took great care of us all.

October 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

My wife and I returned from a 14 day tour of Scotland and Ireland with John Dennany and we are just amazed at the level of service, courtesy and how much can be crammed into 14 days! John was on the spot from day one at the airport right up to day 14 dropping us off again. His entire focus was on making each guest feel like it was their tour. His sense of humor and Irish lilt was very welcome as he explained history, geography and told jokes. He made every effort to accommodate special requests and always found a pub when it was necessary. Even rest room stops offered something to see. I will never forget John and will heartily recommend My Irish Tours to anyone planning to visit Ireland.

I would highly recommend this tour company. Communication was excellent from the start. We did the 14 day Scotland Ireland tour and it was great. The bus was very comfortable and Pat our driver and guide was fantastic, he really made our trip special. His range of knowledge was amazing and he was always available to make sure everything went smoothly. Our accommodations were good and we even stayed one night in a castle. It was so nice not to have the worry of planning and driving. I would definitely recommend My Ireland Tours to everyone.

October 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

Our Scotland and Ireland tour was wonderful. Beginning with our driver picking us up at the airport, everything went as scheduled. John Dennany was very courteous, helpful and knowledgeable during the entire trip. Accommodations were comfortable and the sightseeing was exemplary. Highly recommend this tour company. If you get this guide on your trip you will have a lot of fun and enjoy your time.

October 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

I just returned from the 14-Day Iconic Ireland and Scotland tour with My Ireland Tours and can't speak more highly of this tour and the company itself. From the time I scheduled the tour a year ago until the last moment when the tour ended and I was headed home on the plane, every step was well organized with helpful staff all along the way. The tour itself exceeded all my expectations. All the accomodations were wonderful. Our guide/driver, John Dennany, made a wonderful trip even more amazing. John went out of his way to ensure that each person on our tour enjoyed themselves even ensuring that personal requests were met such as extra stops along the way to visit areas that were significant to the guests family heritage. John took gloomy weather days and turned them into a fun adventure in order to ensure each day was enjoyable for the whole group. When there was a medical emergency within our tour group John again ensured that the guest was first priorty while still ensuring that the rest of the group did not miss out on anything that was scheduled. Even though I just returned, I am already looking at booking another trip with My Ireland Tours. I would highly recommend this tour company to anyone and also would suggest requesting John Dennany as your guide/drive...you will not be disappointed.

September 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

Can highly recommend this tour company. Communication was excellent from the start. We did the 14 day Scotland Ireland tour and it was great. The bus was very comfortable and Pat our driver and guide was fantastic. His range of knowledge was amazing and he was always available to make sure everything went smoothly. Our accomodation was always very nice, staying one night in a castle was amazing. The food overall was good and the last night we attended a show and dinner which was very enjoyable. The only negative was the breakfasts at the hotel in Edinburgh were a bit chaotic. Taking the tour took all the stress out of driving. Thank you Pat and Shannon for a great holiday.

September 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

I was the only solo traveler to a fun group! The guide, Paddy, was absolutely grand! How he remembers all that information, is unbelievable. He definitely makes sure you're ok and treats you like family. The Scotland- Ireland tour was enough to see the highlights of both countries. Although, I wish we were in Dublin for one more day because there wasn't enough time to walk around due to the itinerary. Certain things could have been cut short. I highly recommend this tour overall and would do it again. Some of us would eat outside the hotel for a better feel of the city and for better food options. This really was a great trip.

September 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

We did the 14 day Ireland and Scotland tour and it was absolutely perfect. I can't say enough good things about our driver/guide Paddy. He really made the experience so special. The best driver around hands down! The amount of history we learned from him just while driving in the coach from place to place was incredible. I can't imagine trying to do that trip on our own or with any other tour company. The sights and stops were great, the hotels were perfect and locations were convenient, and the breakfast and dinner options were sufficient. It was truly an unforgettable experience! Thank you so much Paddy, and My Ireland Tour!

September 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

My Ireland Tour group is fantastic! My husband and I took a 14 day tour to Scotland and Ireland. Paddy was an excellent guide and driver who went beyond our expectations! The tour gave us a great overview of the two countries plus the scenery out in the countryside was spectacular! We would recommend My Ireland Tour to everyone! Thanks for everything you did to make our trip wonderful!

September 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

My husband and I just returned from the 14 day Scotland and Ireland tour and if was a fantastic vacation for us. We had never been overseas before and were nervous but our tour driver, Colm, made our trip go smoothly and without incident. We saw places we would have never known to go if we would have been on our own. The entire itinerary was full and we were moving quickly to see everything, but every place we went was well worth the drive. There were times we had to travel 2 hours between spots but Colm made the trip fun and told us stories and gave us so much history. He was extremely knowledgeable. From the time we left Edinburgh until we arrived in Dublin, we had such an amazing experience visiting so many sites. The Lough Eske castle was truly the most beautiful place to stay but the Menlo hotel was not my favorite at all. We were exhausted at the end of our trip but we saw everything we wanted to and more. I highly recommend this company. From the booking until the end it went off without a hitch. Shannon and the team answered emails and questions immediately. I would definitely travel with them again. Thank you for a great vacation!

September 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

We just finished the 14 day Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour. Our driver/guide, Pat, was outstanding! He was knowledgeable, friendly, professional, helpful, and patient. You can tell My Ireland Tours has crafted an excellent itinerary that is well planned. Several fantastic hotels were a big plus on this trip, especially the overnight at Lough Eske Castle. My wife and I will definitely plan another trip with My Ireland Tours in the future!

September 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

Our 14-day Scotland-Ireland tour experience with My Ireland Tours not only met but exceeded all our expectations. This was due in large part to our driver/tour guide, Pat Prendergast, who was fabulous. We flew into Edinburgh a few days early to golf at St. Andrews and to spend time at the Fringe Festival – as well as to get over any jet-lag. Pat picked up our party of seven from our AirBnb on Saturday morning to take us to the Doubletree, where we started off with an introductory dinner and then the Edinburgh Royal Tattoo, which was an incredible way to start off our tour. The 14-day itinerary was aggressive, but we covered a lot of the highlights in both countries. There was also enough free space on the bus to allow people to spread out a little, and the bathroom stops were timed perfectly. Pat was not only an excellent driver, but engaging and informative. He was flexible should participants want to schedule side trips or need a “shopping/rest” day. Thank you Pat and My Ireland Tours for an incredible vacation!

August 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

This tour was everything and more than what was described when I made my decision to join it! The breathtaking scenery, landmarks, villages, cities, nice hotels, and food were above any expectations I may have had. Our tour guide/driver, Colm Marshall, with his vast knowledge of the history , geography, and folklore truly made our journey a trip of a lifetime! Colm's daily humor and passion for the country helped to give us a depth to what we were seeing and kept us in a sensory overload. The small group bonded quickly and since returning have shared with each other pictures of our adventure! If you are hesitating in any way about making a decision to join an My Ireland Tour please don't! I promise you won't be disappointed!

August 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

I just returned from a solo trip to Ireland and Scotland. I couldn't have had a better group of people on my tour. Everyone was friendly and inclusive. I never felt alone. Our driver/guide, Colm, was informative and humorous. He never lost our attention. He made every place interesting. And as the roads were narrow and winding, he was an excellent driver, never putting us at risk. He truly is the best. From the moment I contacted My Ireland Tour, the staff was helpful and considerate of my concerns about booking solo. They were always accessible and made the booking process easy. As to the trip itself, we went to some of the most fascinating sites in Scotland and Ireland, staying at 4 star hotels and castles. Every meal at every place we stayed was great. Our rooms were spacious and extremely clean, with the front desks being accommodating if anything was needed. I highly recommend using My Ireland Tour for any travel you desire in Ireland and Scotland. And try to get Colm as your driver/guide. You won't be disappointed.

August 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

This is a great tour company. We did the 14 day Iconic Scotland-Ireland tour with Colm Marshall as our guide. Colm was knowledgeable, fun and an all around great person to lead us on this adventure. The small group atmosphere made it very easy to get to know and bond with the others. (In fact, we have started a Facebook group, My Ireland Tour, Aug5-18,3023, where we can all share our experiences.) The itinerary was filled with great sites and we were left with some free time to explore on our own. We left lots to see behind for another adventure as seeing 2 countries in 2 weeks is quite an undertaking. The accommodations we great and meals were typical for the regions. I would certainly 100% recommend “My Ireland Tours” to anyone who wants a great introduction to Scotland/Ireland.

August 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

It's 2023 and we've just returned from our FOURTH tour with My Ireland Tour! I can't think of a better testimonial for this amazing tour company than to say that we've come back, four times now, to enjoy the tours that they provide. This year we did the 14 day Scotland / Ireland tour. The driver / guide, Pat, was absolutely phenomenal! We thoroughly enjoyed his knowledge and expertise. The itinerary was exceptionally well planned and equally well executed. Just the right pace to see everything there is to see without being hectic or hurried. Fantastic hotels were a big plus on this trip, especially the overnight castle stay. To put it very simply, My Ireland Tour is the top touring company for your visit to Ireland.

August 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

We took the 14 day Scotland and Ireland tour. From our first communication with Keith , we were off to a good start. We can't say enough about Ken O'connell our tour guide. He was both funny, and a wealth of knowledge. He was able to tell us so much about the countries, and all the stops we made in between! We know Ken worked hard but he made it look easy, he is very good at his job! I will not hesitate to recommend My Ireland Tour to anyone!!!! I would love to do another tour with them in the future!

July 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

I just returned from the Iconic Scotland and Ireland tour and it surpassed all my expectations! Paddy O'Farrell was the best guide. He was personable, funny and told great stories of Scotland and Ireland history and legends. Several times Paddy added extra stops that were not on the itinerary. We stayed in amazing places and saw so much of these beautiful countries. We also had plenty of time to explore on our own. I would love to return again for another tour with My Ireland Tours.

July 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

I just took the 14 day Iconic Ireland and Scotland tour with Paddy O'Farrell. Paddy was an excellent tour guide, a very safe driver, always giving us great recommendations and keeping us safe. He was extremely knowledgeable and taught us so much history, was very funny and did a great job herding us and keeping us on schedule. I would recommend this company to anyone who is looking to take a tour of Scotland or Ireland. Wonderful, wonderful memories!! Thank you My Ireland Tour and Paddy!

July 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

My wife and I had what has got to be one of the best trips of our lifetime with My Ireland Tours, the Iconic Ireland and Scotland 14 day tour. Becky has always been interested in the monarchy of the U.K. What a treat to have walked where Mary Queen of Scots and other royals walked. We even had lunch in a cute little restaurant where Prince William had his first date, and according to the restaurant manager we spoke to, numerous subsequent dates, with Princess Kate. The magnificence of the beautiful cathedrals we visited along with the many castles and palaces helped to make this a real trip of a lifetime. Thankfully we were told early on In Edinburgh that touching the noise of the statue of Greyfriar's Bobby would bring good luck, because doing so helped us to have wonderful weather for most of the trip. Pat our tour guide/driver was so much more than that. Yes, he was extremely knowledgeable, and constantly kept us informed about the history and geology of the areas we visited, but he also went out of his way to make sure that our trip was as special as it could possibly be. He became a good friend, and my wife even told me the other day that she misses him. Thanks Pat, for all you did to make this a truly wonderful trip. Hal and Becky Gersch.

July 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

We are back from a 14 day Scotland and Ireland tour and our entire family loved it! The itinerary was fabulous and we received top notch service from everyone at MIT. We had problems with airline cancellations and everyone was so helpful trying to help us rearrange our schedules in the best way possible to join the tour. Our tour guide, Pat, was the best! We would highly recommend this tour and My Ireland Tours to anyone thinking about traveling to Scotland and Ireland.

July 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

Thoroughly enjoyed our 14 day tour of Scotland and Ireland with Paddy O'Farrell as our guide. He was very knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. Everything was taken care of in terms of hotels, luggage, and meals. We loved all the fun stops we made along the way, and of course, the beautiful scenery of both countries. Would highly recommend anyone!

June 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

Ben was our tour guide and he was great. He told stories, explained alot about different events in Ireland's history, even sang songs! It was a very busy tour with not much down time, but we got the opportunity to see many areas of Ireland that we probably wouldn't have been able to see on our own. We started in Dublin, went to the EPIC Immigration Museum, the Guinness Brewery, and got to walk around Dublin. We ate at a restaurant called The Church, on our own, and I highly recommend it. They play traditional Irish Music every night and have Irish Step Dancers who were amazing to watch. Staying in Limerick was very nice. I got some photos of the sunset over the River Shannon at 9:30 at night, which was surreal. The sun sets around 8:30 on Cape Cod this time of year. Driving through the country side was beautiful. You see cows, cows, and more cows! But, the different way of life is eye opening! We drove through the Ring of Kerry. We stopped at a little village called Waterville which was beautiful. Killarney was nice also. We only got to spend 45 minutes in Galway City which was a bit of a disappointment. We would have wanted more time there. The Blarney Castle was amazing! And, as gross as it is, you HAVE TO kiss the Blarney Stone while you're there! The grounds at the castle were beautifully manicured and taken care of. The shopping at the Woolen Mills is a MUST! All in all it was a great trip. If you want to see many different spots and areas of the country, this is the way to do it. I do recommend Dramamine for anyone who gets even some motion sickness as being on the bus can be cumbersome and make you a little woozy. Ben was a great tour guide and a really nice guy. I do recommend this trip for groups of adults and teenagers (we had 5 with us, and they enjoyed it)!

June 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

A good friend and I just returned from a wonderful 14-day journey through Scotland, Northern Ireland, and the Republic of Ireland with My Ireland Tours. Our tour guide and driver, Paddy O'Farrell, was an excellent driver, making us feel very safe. Beyond that, he was so knowledgeable about the history and culture of the people of Scotland and Ireland, making the trip entertaining. Breakfast and dinner at our hotels were always included, as well as a lunch or two. All were delicious. The hotels were at least 4-star, and they provided excellent, friendly service. We always felt welcome in these beautiful countries. We were also lucky to travel with a very congenial group of people from different parts of the United States. I can highly recommend a trip to Scotland and Ireland as well as traveling with this excellent company, My Ireland Tours.

June 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

My wife and I really enjoyed our tour of Scotland, Northern Ireland, and the Republic of Ireland. So much history and beautiful scenery. Our tour guide/driver, Paddy, did a superb job driving, explaining all the sights, and giving us insight into the history of Ireland and Scotland. New friends were made with the group of 26 that was on the tour. We highly recommend and appreciate My Ireland Tours.

June 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

We just returned home from a 2 week Iconic Scotland and Ireland tour, expertly guided by Paddy O'Farrell, our driver as well. This tour included the most desired stops in both countries. Paddy led us to some of the most beautiful cities and small towns, always telling us about the history of the countries as we drove along. He was full of stories and jokes to pass the time while we were driving. He played music on the bus when he sensed it was 'nap time' for us! Being on a small tour of only 24 made travelling easier than being with a larger group. All strangers at the outset, our group meshed quite quickly. My Ireland Tour made it so easy to make travel plans - Once booked all arrangements were made for hotels, meals, travel vouchers, and anything else needed for this 2 week tour. At every hotel stop I would like to acknowledge all of the luggage porters who delivered our bags to us in a very timely fashion, and thanks to Paddy for loading the bus at each stop and making sure all luggage was accounted for. We never had to worry about a thing! I highly recommend My Ireland Tour and highly recommend Paddy O'Farrell as a fabulous, careful driver and very knowledgeable guide. FIVE STARS

June 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

The 14-day tour of Scotland and Ireland was an incredible experience! The booking was easy and Shauni answered so many questions and kept in contact with updates all through the process. Our driver, Harry Fisher, is a wealth of knowledge, a great driver, and he made sure everyone was safe and comfortable. We lucked out with a super fun group which made stops, bus time, and after dinner just a blast! The itinerary for this trip as a perfect mix of castles, churches, landmarks, landscape, experiences (super cool sheep dog demonstration, Kingsbarns Distillery, chocolate making and Guinness Storehouse, etc). Well done My Ireland Tours! As Harry says, 'It's better to be looking at it than looking for it.' Book with My Ireland Tours!

June 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

Just completed the 14 Day Scotland & Ireland Tour with my wife. 5 star, absolutely fantastic trip. Our Tour Guid, Harry Fisher was outstanding! He is very detailed and ensured nothing was left unattended. Harry is an excellent driver and provided all the history and facts that added to the trip experience. My Irelands tour is the best, better than expected for our first tour. Smaller 26 person group was perfect. The entire group came together, became friends and hung out. Enthusiastically recommended.

June 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

Took the Iconic 14 day Scotland/Ireland tour in May with with our personal leprechaun Paddy O'Farrell who was our guide and driver. What a fantastic whirlwind of activity! With only 26 folks on the motorcoach, we had plenty of room to spread out since each day included hours of traveling and sightseeing but Paddy maneuvered that huge bus like a warm knife through butter since many of the ancient picturesque and winding roads we traveled were surely not meant for large vehicles or even two lanes!! Paddy alerted us with tidbits of interesting information before encountering sites along the road but he was also a font of historical knowledge, folklore, regional information, stories, suggestions for our free time and all of it interspersed with respect and humor! The itinerary was marvelous but the scenery was out of this world - tiny towns, sheep, majestic ocean/sea views, sheep, castles, abbeys, antiquated ruins, local talent and more sheep. Some hotels were within city limits, allowing us to wander and others were tucked away in wonderlands of beauty but the highlight was spending one night in a castle guarded by a dragon! The culture, the food, the beverages and the people of Scotland and Ireland have made this a trip of a lifetime for us and we will sing the praises of My Ireland Tour forever. Thank you!

June 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

The adventure of the Scotland-Ireland 14 day tour, a group of 26, who became 'family', under the watchful and loving care of our amazing guide-driver, Paddy O'Farrell, was a daily joy of discovery, learning, experiencing and enjoying! As we wended our way from Edinburgh, Scotland, to Northern Ireland and then to the Republic of Ireland, there was ongoing history and information communicated by Paddy, with amazing knowledge and insight, making the period of 500 A.D. to the present meaningful by interjecting literary references, politics, and his personal reflections. His love of history and his desire to make sure that we shared his respect and regard for these countries was constant. Our hotels were 4 star, except for Lough Eske Castle, which defied the star categorization by setting its own standard. It was as if we had arrived at 'Downton Abbey', with accommodations fit for Kings and Queens, and a dinner service to match! Since all of the other hotels were chosen to be 'in town', and central, and, unlike most tours, we were able to spend more than just one night in one location. This allowed for a more restful period while never missing any sightseeing destinations. It was one of the reasons I chose to travel with My Ireland Tours. I was not disappointed! And whenever there was something special in an area, a Celtic show, a special photo view, or being at the right place, at the right time, Paddy made sure 'we were there'. He was the 'sheep dog' making sure that his flock were safe, rescuing the occasional strays with good humor and caring. While we toured, or before leaving in the morning, Paddy made sure that the bus was cleaned and windows sparkling, so we could enjoy the magnificent views. He had a personal greeting and conversation for each of us. His close attention to our special need person's requirements was always primary, warm and admirable. 500 photos later, it was time to say farewell to fellow travelers, especially difficult was finding the words to adequately express the admiration and appreciation of our unique, Paddy. I know that everyone thinks that they have had the best tour director, but, we really did!!! Thank you Paddy!

June 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

My husband, George, and I, had a fantastic experience on the Iconic Scotland and Ireland tour. Everything was so well organized. The hotels were clean and comfortable, the staff gracious and friendly. Our driver, Paddy O'Farrell, was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Scotland and Ireland. I was so impressed by the amount of historical knowledge he shared with us, our cup was overflowing with stories, facts and details that until then were unknown to us. George and I are so grateful we had the opportunity to participate in this adventure...to make new friends, appreciate the struggle and beauty of both countries and to leave with a deeper understanding of the those who went before.

May 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

Enjoyed an amazing vacation with My Ireland Tour on their Iconic Scotland and Ireland Tour! Our tour guide, Paddy O'Farrell, was incredibly knowledgeable and went above and beyond to ensure everyone had the best time ever. Would definitely recommend!!

May 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

We took a two week tour seeing both Scotland and Ireland, spending about a week in each. Patty was our driver and guide and was absolutely AMAZING. He kept us on track, answered hundreds of questions, got us to all of the sites and made sure we had everything we needed. We stayed in 8 different hotels and our luggage was delivered to our room at each hotel. One of the best parts of this tour is that the bus was purposely not full. We almost had enough room for everyone to have their own seat and being on the bus for long amounts of time that was important to me. Being on this tour was a great way to visit places like Edinburgh, castles, palaces, abbeys, cemeteries, a distillery, Loch Ness, Glasgow, Belfast, Giant's Causeway, Cliffs of Moher, Ring of Kerry, Blarney Castle, and Dublin. This trip is go go go and not for the faint of heart, but it was amazing and I do not regret going on this tour for one minute. Well worth the price. Just to note, many of the hotels did not have AC and I did get a little tired of the hotel food and eating later at night. With that said, I would highly recommend this tour.

May 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

I just returned from the 14 day Scotland/Ireland tour. It was an amazing experience and I learned so much about so many different places. My favorite place of the trip was probably the two days we spent in Edinburgh. We were taken on tours, but we also had free time to explore on our own and we were able to see other sights not on the tour by doing this. The rest of the tour was packed with so many things which I wanted to see that there was very little free time to add additional preferences to our stops. Paddy was an amazing tour guide and driver. He was informative and knowledgeable and was able to fill in gaps that were often left out by the step-on guides that we had. One thing to keep in mind if you have food sensitivities or allergies, be very careful and check with the chef in each hotel. One thing I would change if I could would be the time spent eating. It took 1 1/2 to 2 hours to eat dinner with the group as they spread out starters, entrees, and dessert over a long period of time. I felt we could have condensed that and given us more free time to explore. We did decide to skip a few of the provided meals in some of the towns so that we could explore and eat on our own and that was fun. Overall an amazing experience.

May 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

From start to finish our Scotland/Ireland tour was absolutely fantastic. Our driver Paddy went above and beyond to make our trip memorable. I recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see Scotland and Ireland!

May 2023  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

I just got back from a 14 day tour of Scotland, No. Ireland and Ireland. It was a whirlwind! We saw so many things and learned so much from our tour guide Paddy. He went above and beyond for our group. He was funny and full of information. He would tell us about the area we were going and give us suggestions for what to see and where to eat when he dropped us off. The one issue our group had was starting our three course two hour dinner at 7:30 each night. By the end of the day we were exhausted and ready for a quicker bite before bed. But I would certainly book another tour with My Ireland Tours! They are organized and well planned! Thank you for an amazing vacation!

November 2022  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

No wonder that fairies, leprechauns and other fabulous creatures have chosen to live in Ireland and Scotland. Driving along the picturesque Loch Lomond or through the forest at Lough Eske Castle I was almost expecting to see some of them. It would have been a marvellous addition to the picture of Nessie … But without the help of Eric and his team I would never have been able to enjoy another amazing tour with My Ireland Tour. Thanks again for finding me a vacancy on this tour. We were just 24 people and had plenty of space in a huge and very comfortable coach. Although I was the only non- native English speaker, I never felt lost on contrary this awesome and friendly group made me feel welcome the very beginning. Our tour director Harry Fisher was simply the best. I still envy his outstanding driving skills. If you want to see Ireland / Scotland and meet fantastic people, I highly recommend My Ireland Tour.

November 2022  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

Just finished our the 14 day tour of Scotland and Ireland. It was a mother-daughters trip and I can say we would do a tour with My Ireland Tour again in a heartbeat. I loved the small size of the tour and the ability to space out on the bus. The smaller tour also gave us an opportunity to meet a wonderful group of people. Our driver Harry was outstanding and did a great job on reading the mood of the bus each and every day. If My Ireland Tour did 2 weeks in Scotland I would book another trip tomorrow. Thank you for a wonderful time - my daughters loved every moment of the trip.

October 2022  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

My husband and I loved our trip to Scotland and Ireland with My Ireland Tour. Our driver/guide was fantastic! He was knowledgeable about the history of the area and pointed out interesting places along the drive. The food was amazing. Our hotels were all very nice. This tour allowed us to see many places in Scotland and Ireland in the 2 weeks. I felt the pace was good. There was a nice mix of time with the group and time on our own. I appreciated being able to go on a big trip and not have to plan all of the little details. We could not have asked for a better trip. We highly recommend My Ireland Tour and would go on another trip with them in the future!

October 2022  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the Scotland/Ireland tour. Our driver/guide, Pat, not only facilitated each detail of the journey, but helped it come alive with his vast knowledge. My only suggestion would be to use hotels in Galway and Dublin that allow travelers to access the city on their free time. Lodging outside of town restricts ability to see and visit local sites. Thank you for a once in a lifetime experience!!!!

October 2022  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

We just returned from a wonderfully organized and executed tour of both Scotland and Ireland. I always wanted to go, but a recent surprising DNA test validated a suspicion. Yep, very close ties to Donegal, Ireland, so we just had to go. Even met a new family member while there. The lodging selections were all great, and some even fantastic castles. The food provided was also good and it was great at the end of a travel day to have the dinner included. Our guide Harry Fisher was on time, knowledgeable, funny, a great driver and had all of our best interests in mind while managing a 14 day tour. He had a wealth of information and history for all of the stops on our itinerary. I learned a lot. He was very diplomatic and had so much class in how information was presented. He told us history and folk lore stories. Was really fun. Occasionally he even sang a tune for us. I picked My Ireland for a more local experience. The tour company planned every detail very well. Buses were clean, comfortable, stops for bio breaks were great, and we all appreciated the thoughtfulness of our host. Highly recommend this tour company! My only suggestion is more salads at dinner. October weather was on the cooler side, but I prefer that to a hot summer. Enjoyed it and will have many great memories to reflect on for years to come. You must go!

October 2022  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

We went on the Scotland and Ireland 14 day tour in Oct 2022. There were 24 people on the tour; 23 0f 24 from the USA and 1 from Switzerland. The group was friendly and a lot of fun. The management of the tour was excellent. The My Ireland office was very prompt in their communication and very personable. The hotels arranged for the tour were top notch and the food was great. Our guide was Harry Fisher. He was an excellent driver, especially with the many tight turns for the coach. Harry was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. He knew the history of each area we visited which helped us relate to the sites. Best of all was his humor and his Irish blarney kept us on our toes. We highly recommend this tour company and the 2 country tour.

October 2022  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

My husband Rick and I just returned from the 2-week Scottland and Ireland tour. We had a wonderful time. All hotels except one (Menlo Park) were first rate. Our driver and guide Patrick could not have been more knowledgeable and accommodating. We were exhausted when we returned home because it is fast paced, but we feel we really got a great feel of both countries. A great addition to the tour would be a visit to the Titanic Museum in Belfast. We were disappointed that we did not have the opportunity to visit there. All in all, a 5 star experience!

October 2022  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

Would highly recommend this tour. Took the 2 week Iconic Scotland / Ireland tour and was very happy with all aspects of it. We covered a lot of ground; Scotland, Northern Ireland, & the Republic of Ireland. We saw all the major highlights of these areas that would have been hard to see on our own in the same amount of time. Hotels were great and breakfast and dinner was included for each day. Our Tour guide/leader, Paddy, was fantastic. Very knowledgeable in the historical and political aspects of these regions presented the information in a way to make it interesting to all.

October 2022  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

Our expectations were exceeded in almost every respect. Paddy O'Farrell became a friend to all on the tour and provided insight to the history and culture of Scotland and especially Ireland while directing us to the myriad of stunning views and memories of a trip well planned, beginning to end.

October 2022  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

I booked a long awaited trip to Scotland and Ireland through My Ireland Tour and it was the best trip ever. I started out in Edinburgh and after touring Scotland for 5 and a half days and then over 8 days throughout Ireland with a great tour guide, Paddy Farrell, I had a great time. I saw castles, even stayed in a couple, ate great food, watched a sheep dog demonstration, Irish dancers, visited beautiful Cathedrals, saw some beautiful countryside! I plan on going back for another tour and highly recommend this company for anyone that want to visit these countries! Thank you My Ireland Tour for a wonderful experience!

September 2022  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

My wife and I highly recommend My Ireland Tour! We particularly enjoyed out tour guide, Harry Fisher, who is kind, knowledgeable and extremely funny. The two week tour included all the highlights of Scotland and Ireland on a lovely roomy air-conditioned coach. The group was small so there was plenty of room on board and the hotels were excellent especially The Loch Eske Castle in Donegal. If you take the tour you will not be disappointed and don't forget to kiss the Blarney Stone!

September 2022  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

We just returned from the wonderful Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour and must rave about it! It was a trip of a lifetime. Our Tour Director/Driver Harry Fisher is very knowledgeable, fun and accommodating as well as a very skilled driver which we saw firsthand on those hairpin turns. He regaled us with historic facts, stories and tidbits from Edinburgh to Dublin. We highly recommend this tour and Terrific Harry!

September 2022  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

We recently spent two weeks touring parts of Scotland and Ireland with the my Ireland tour group. We had a private car and driver for the entire trip. The driver was excellent polite efficient and had a great personality. The places chosen to to go to work wonderful and very enjoyable. The trip was efficiently put together with great feedback opportunities. The local guides which were at various points of the trip were generally excellent. The hotels were variable depending on where we were located some were excellent and some were good. We Had a great time and would recommend them to anyone considering a visit to Scotland or Ireland.

September 2022  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

What a wonderful experience! We just returned from 14 days of Scotland and Ireland! Our tour guide went above and beyond. Always there to help and guide us. He really is 'Terrific' Harry as he kept mentioning. Would definitely recommend My Ireland tour to anyone.

September 2022  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

We took the 14 day Iconic Ireland & Scotland Tour on August 27-September 9, 2022 that a friend discovered and had booked for themselves. Upon researching this tour, we were so impressed with the small tour size, all the cities and places we would visit, and the quality of the hotels that we tried to book it for our 40th wedding anniversary only to learn that it, and all others this summer, were fully booked! Luckily for us, we got a phone call from Shannon to advise that they had just had a cancellation on the tour we had originally wanted to book! The week prior to the tour we received an email with our detailed tour itinerary which I took with me. I found this document very useful and read it every evening to familiarize myself with where and what we would be doing the following day. Regretfully, the distillery promoted on their website was changed to a very new one and while we learned about the making of their whiskey there was no sampling. The hotels were all 4 star or better. A number didn't have individual room air conditioning but thank goodness their windows did open and fans were provided which made sleeping temperatures more comfortable. Why all European hotels use heavy duvets in the summer is a mystery as the rooms are too warm for them. The food was fantastic and plentiful with dinners all being 3 courses. Our daily dinner menus provided 2 appetizer choices, 3 entrees, and a couple of desserts and all featured local fare. My husband is allergic to onions and the staff knew what dishes contained them and where possible were able to eliminate from the dish he ordered or suggest an alternate dish. The days were long which we expected given the distances covered and the activities and sights included. Dinners were generally around 7pm with a few at 8pm. I took a supply of Power Bars which I was glad to have as there were no coffee breaks or places to buy snacks. Our driver, Paddy, offered to buy us tickets to Celtic Steps, an Irish dance and music show being held nearby. The show was fantasic! We really enjoyed the Traditional Music Night and dinner at the Merry Ploughboy Pub in Dublin area. Service was excellent as was the quality of the food and entertainment. We highly recommend My Ireland Tours and wouldn't hesitate to book another one with them.

September 2022  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

I just came back from the 14 day Scotland & Ireland tour and can't say enough about it. The company handled all of the accommodations, reservations and tours flawlessly. We had a fun group and Paddy our tour guide was the best! Each day was action packed so be prepared for a lot of walking. The hotel accommodations and castles were fun to explore as well as the meals. You do have free time in the late afternoon or after dinner to explore on your own. I came in a day ahead which was helpful to get acclimated before the tour started. Others added a day or two at the end. I know there's no way I would've been able to see everything had I done this on my own. Overall, I can't say enough about the experience and the company. Great communication throughout the entire process. Thank you Shauni and Paddy for an awesome and memorable vacation!!!

September 2022  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

We just returned from the Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour and it definitely met our expectations. This was our first bus/coach tour and it provided us with visits to so many amazing sites. The accommodations were first rate, the meals were very good, and the itinerary was superb. Our guide/driver, Paddy, was excellent. He went above and beyond on many occasions for us, for others in need of specific help, and for the entire group by adding extra stops along the way. He was very knowledgeable, pleasant, and entertaining. The specialty tour guides were also very informative and friendly. We also enjoyed meeting the other guests and felt like a family at the end of the tour. We highly recommend this tour!

September 2022  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

This was our first trip to Scotland and Ireland, and I don't think we could have selected a better tour company than MyIrelandTour. Our driver/tour guide Mike was outstanding throughout the tour. Mike, being from Dublin had a vast amount of knowledge regarding Ireland as well as Scotland. He made the 14 day tour go by too fast!!! In regard to our tour package, out hotel accommodations, dinners and breakfasts were 5 star. The various attractions and sites that we stopped at were all historical and beautiful. If you plan on visiting Scotland or Ireland or both, I highly recommend that you consider MyIrelandTour!!!!

August 2022  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

Best tour ever! Paddy our guide and driver added many interesting stops not listed on the itinerary. Stopping every hour or two made it stress free. Highly recommend this company as they quickly responded to a multitude of questions I emailed before we arrived. Our Scotland and Ireland trip was a trip everyone should have on their bucket list. Amazing and welcoming people throughout the trip.

August 2022  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

The Ireland and Scotland tour was superbly organised and I was very satisfied with all of it. The guide was always present and informative. The accomodation was all very good. In my opinion, this almost perfect tour could be made even more perfect with a one day extension in Belfast and most people on the tour also commented on it. This would have meant that we could have visited the Titanic exhibition which most people wished to visit. It would also have meant that the following day we could have left for Giant's Causeway earlier and arrived at Lough Eske Castle in early afternoon instead of at 6.30. This is such a stupendous place and has so many amenities we would have all wished to have had more time for . Sometimes the dinner timing was changed to an earlier time and while this might have suited clients from the USA it did not really suit us from Europe who are used to dining much later. It meant rushing to get ready for dinner after a long drive and the evening just ended earlier. On the whole, I was very pleased and am thinking of taking a different trip with the same company in the future, perhaps a more luxurious one in some of the great accomodations they offer. I would recommend the company to anyone.

August 2022  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

We had a wonderful time on our tour of Scotland and Ireland. The accommodations exceeded our expectations and the food was awesome. The tour itself offered a variety of sights and activities. Our only complaint is that we didn't have enough time at each place. We now have more reasons to go back! Our tour driver (Paddy)was I woboth knowledgeable and flexible. Our family would definitely use this t his your company again.

August 2022  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

Just returned from the 14 day Iconic tour of Scotland and Ireland, and it was amazing. The places we visited were all memorable with each having their own mystique. We were treated to very good to excellent accomodations with delicious morning and evening fare. The best of the best was Paddy, our driver, guide, and consul. He made the journey come alive. Although some days were hurried, there was always time for a wee dram with our fellow travelers. Wish our group the best until we meet again.

July 2022  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

Paddy, our tour guide was absolutely wonderful, so knowledgeable and an awesome person, took great care of all of us. This was the trip of a lifetime for me and I enjoyed every minute of it. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a tour of Scotland and Ireland. I have over 1000 pictures and so many wonderful memories. Can't wait to go again, this tour company was excellent.

July 2022  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

We had a fabulous time on our 14 day tour of Scotland and Ireland! Absolutely loved the gorgeous scenery and all the historical sights. Our driver and guide Paddy O'Farrell was awesome!! He made our trip so special. We would highly recommend this amazing tour to family and friends! Diane Miller Baton Rouge, LA

July 2022  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

Great tour of Scotland and Ireland. Hotels were very nice and the food was delicious. Very informative tour guides in Scotland and Paddy was excellent in Ireland. Overall a wonderful experience.

July 2022  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

My wife and I took the Scotland/Ireland tour the end of May first 10 days of June. We had a wonderful experience with a variety of sites in both countries. Paddy was our driver and was great. I am sure all of their drivers are wonderful but our experience with Paddy would be hard to beat. For me the visit to the distillery, cut glass factory and sheep dog herding demonstration was quite enlightening. Our stay in 2 different castles was a unique experience and both were quite different. My wife, the shopper, liked everything as well but especially the trip to Blarney Woollen Mills where she could by sweaters! We went a day early to adjust to the time change and the overnight travel thinking we might take a nap and go sight seeing. However, we couldn't get in the room until the afternoon (we arrived at 9 AM) so we went sight seeing without the nap. It was nice to be able to do so and if you make the same decision I recommend a visit to the Edinburg Botanical Gardens.

June 2022  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

We spent 2 weeks this May, 2022 touring Scotland and Ireland with Pat and My Ireland Tours. The daily itinerary was suggested to us but we were able to make changes. We were a party of 11 and this type of tour was exactly what we wanted- not a bus with 40-50 people. We moved at our own pace and Pat was amazing. Not only was he an exceptional driver but an A+++ tour guide. We were constantly surprised by his knowledge of history and many, many fun stories. We all loved his great sense of humor... Pat had suggestions of where to eat, places not to miss. The trip was all we expected and more!

June 2022  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

14 Day Scotland - Ireland Tour. This was the trip of a life time. We originally scheduled this trip for 2021 but had to reschedule for 2022. The wait was well worth it! The sites, the hotels and tour bus were worthy of 5 stars. Our guide, Paddy, should be given more than 5 stars. His knowledge and explanation (with a bit of humor) of the sites visited was wonderful. He also made some stops that were not on the tour that were beautiful photo opportunities. My wife had a medical issue a week into the tour and Paddy made sure to find us a 24 hour medical care within a 1/2 mile of our hotel. While we stayed at the hotel for the day, Paddy kept in contact with us to make sure everything was ok. Every thing that we saw and experienced was amazing. The last night at the Merry Ploughboys Restaurant and Pub was the perfect end to a magical vacation. If I were to change one thing about the tour, it would be to have an afternoon off at a 2 night hotel about half way through the tour. We could have used an afternoon of down time to just relax. Still a 5 star tour that we would do again in a heart beat!

June 2022  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

My mom and I really enjoyed this tour to Scotland and Ireland. Our tour guide Paddy was wonderful: nice, funny, knowledgeable, and on top of everything. Most of the hotels were awesome. Two of them were even castles, which was amazing. The activities were great, and we usually had some free time in the evening before dinner to either relax or explore the town on our own if we need more physical activity after spending a lot of time on the bus. The food was good. They fulfilled dietary requirements. The castles had amazing menus. My only minor complaint was by the end of the tour the meals were getting so repetitive. It felt like I ate 2 different meals over and over.

June 2022  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

We used My Ireland Tours to take our first trip to Ireland and they made it better than we could have ever imagined. They took so much stress off of our plates when it came to booking hotels, travel, Covid protocol, and giving us the best tour guides. My whole family agrees that our driver Pat was a highlight of our experience! He was knowledgeable about everywhere we went and was great if we decided we wanted to do something on the fly, he would get it done for us! Our private bus was amazing, we joked that it was almost too comfortable because we always wanted to take a nap in it! We saw so much of Ireland and we know we couldn't have done that without My Ireland Tours. If you want to see all the sights of Ireland I fully recommend setting up a trip with My Ireland Tours and get Pat as your driver!

May 2022  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

This is our second tour of Ireland which also included time in Scotland (Edinburgh and Glascow). Our accommodations, for the most part, were very good with the highlight being Harvey's Point in Donegal. Our driver and tour guide, Pat, made the experience very special. His understanding and depth of knowledge of the people and history of Ireland are exceptional. He was able to put into context the complicated history of Ireland and made travel to every destination an adventure. We also appreciated his Irish wit. We highly recommend My Ireland Tours. Well done!

May 2022  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

My trip to Scotland and Ireland was a dream I have had for many years. My Ireland Tours did NOT disappoint. The accommodations were excellent, as was the food. I could not have asked for a better tour guide than Paddy. He was one of the best bus drivers I have every had, which was vitally important due to the narrow roads, especially through some of the smaller towns. He gave us a vivid picture of the history of Scotland and Ireland, while adding personal stories, explaining local lore and culture. In addition, Paddy listened to the members of the tour. He broke up some of the long drives as best he could, so we could stretch our legs and take pictures. He was patient and somehow was always in good spirits. This tour has only whetted my appetite to return to these beautiful countries and experience places we were unable to go. You absolutely cannot go wrong with My Ireland Tours, especially if you are lucky enough to have Paddy as your guide. Well worth every dime spent.

May 2022  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

Outstanding!!!!! In a one word description. I took the 14 day Scotland/Ireland tour. This was my 1st trip abroad as a solo traveler so there was much research before I booked this trip. MyIrelandTour has a very fair Covid policy if you need to change your plans so I took the plunge, made final payment & never looked back. Anytime I emailed the company they responded almost immediately. Any questions were answered so I felt very comfortable boarding that plane & making my way across the ocean. I was greeted by our driver Paddy at Edinburgh Airport. Myself & a few others had arrived for pickup. At our first hotel even though it was very early for check in, the hotel was able to get all of us into our rooms. This was so appreciated after the flight. From the driver/guide to the group to the 3-5 star accommodations. The meals, the sites we visited, the scenery when traveling & the knowledge of Paddy & a couple other Step-on Guides made this trip an unforgettable experience I will never forget. It has set the bar very high for any future tours I may take. Key take aways- Mad driving skills by our driver Paddy. Got us where we needed to be on time & safe. Learned so much history from Paddy. He gave enough information but did not talk continuously. He knows the history of the lands. Played some good local music. Did I mention Paddy!!! Just can not say enough great things about him. He is a gem. Our group-could not have asked for a better group to travel with. There were several other solo travelers. Small group but large bus so we could spread out. Max group size is 26, we had 24. Accommodations, clean, friendly staff, welcoming. Restaurants served good food. Always a good selection for your breakfast & dinner. Dinners were all 3 course. Alcoholic beverages are not included. All hotels had a bar. The places we visited were all very interesting & very beautiful. Many we had time to wonder on our own. Quiant little towns. Live Irish show on our last night was entertaining. If you have been considering a visit to this area I highly recommend this tour company. I will definitely use again if I go back.

May 2022  •  Iconic Ireland and Scotland Tour

Our tour of Scotland and Ireland was fabulous. Our tour guide Paddy was so informative, kind, humorous and accommodating. The stories he told gave us insight to so much more of the history of such remarkable, historical, beautiful sights! The hotels were very comfortable and the food amazing. We toured with a great group of people! I would highly recommend My Ireland Tours to anyone! It was a trip of a lifetime! Thank you Paddy for making our memories ones that will never be forgotten!
